4 Things Authentic People Do

I coach a lot of women who long to live authentically.

Many of them can identify someone they know who seems to be very genuine and authentic and lives a very happy life. These women aspire to do so as well. Through my coaching, I’ve identified these four things that authentic people do that might help you live more authentically.

1. They Are in Integrity With Their True Selves:

Authentic people are genuine, real, and (mostly) in integrity with themselves. They don’t try to be someone they are not or please people they don’t know. They, in some ways, know that they are unique and accept that aspect of themselves. For them, being different is not an issue nor something they thrive to be; they simply are themselves.

2. They Do What They Love:

Authentic people also love doing what they enjoy and don’t try to copy others’ ideas for the sake of being successful. Their success comes from doing what is in their heart, what drives them, as opposed to what inspires others. When you do the things that you love, you are being authentic, you are exposing the best version of yourself, and that’s why it is fulfilling. Sometimes, you need to take a risk and try something new to see if you love it and find fulfillment.

3. They Are in Tune With Their Inner Child:

Another way to reconnect with your true and authentic self is to rediscover your inner child, the one that didn’t care about what others thought. Try to be more like your inner child and awaken that aspect of you that you knew when you were young. Take the time to play again and even to make mistakes and try something else. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable and do what your heart tells you to do, no matter what others may think.

4. They Don’t Compare Themselves To Others:

One of the best ways to connect with your authentic self is to stop comparing yourself to others. When you compare yourself to others, you automatically feed a belief that you should be like others, that being yourself is not enough. This limits you from being okay with being yourself. Most of us compare ourselves to others because we have that belief that others have it better than us. This can transform into envy or jealousy. To live authentically, we need to free ourselves from comparison.
